the WE DO campaign

For the past 10 days, same-sex couples in Asheville, North Carolina have been showing up to the county register's office to politely request marriage licenses.

john and i were just ctm-ing about this account of what happened when rage against the machine's tom morello showed up at zucchini park yesterday to perform, while the protestors were scrambling to clean up the park and avoid being forcibly evicted this morning:
The cleanup efforts were temporarily derailed on Thursday by the appearance of Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello. Some facilitators were not pleased.

Bloomberg, meanwhile, attempted to explain the change of course on his radio show this morning. "Yesterday, as of 8 o’clock at night, they were going ahead to do it, but, as of midnight, they called and said they wanted to postpone the cleaning operations," he said. The mayor went on to blame members of local government for pressuring the park's owners: "My understanding is Brookfield got lots of calls from many elected officials, threatening them and saying if you don't stop this we'll make your life more difficult," he said. "If those elected officials had spent half as much time trying to promote the city to get jobs to come here we would a lot more ways towards answering the concerns of the protesters.
"There has to be some resolution eventually," he added. (via)
that doesn't make a lick of sense.

the new museum is getting this.

If all goes as planned, the New Museum’s five-year-old building on the Bowery will become something of an amusement park beginning Oct. 26, with visitors hurtling through a giant plastic tube from the fourth floor to the second. (via)
